Can someone, (preferably), with a brand new MacBook Air, (as I have right here), do me a favour please. Also you must be running 10.8.2 for this -

 

Open a terminal window and type exactly, (or better copy and paste), the below single line of red text. By the way all it will do is show info from the boot process.

 

sudo dmesg

 

The Mac will ask for an admin password which you won't actually see being typed in. From somewhere in the resulting text do you see what's printed below as I want to know if what I have is normal?

Thanks for you assistance.
